josh... here, buddy. thank you. jonah (o.s.): justin willman, everybody! kumail (o.s.): justin willman, everybody. thanks for coming to the meltdown! that's our show! that's our show, goodnight! thank you so much. thank you so much for coming! jonah (o.s.): thank you so much. kumail (o.s.): unreal. get the banana. >> from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show with jon stewart."
captioning sponsored by comedy central [theme music playing] [cheering and applause] >> jon: welcome. welcome to "the daily show." my name is jon stewart. we got a show tonight. wu-tang clan is going to be on tonight. the wu! history in the making. i mean, i got to tell you, if my name was jason and i wasn't here, i would be very upset about this show. but we're wishing you the best, jason. get home safe and then come and see wu tang with us. but before we get to that, which history in the making, political primary season still happening. last night huge news results in the g.o.p. tea party versus establishment civil war. that has been pitting young, hardline, right-wing tea party obstructionists against older ones. [laughter]
it's the subject tonight. a number of primary votes yesterday, foremost among them, kansas. three-term conservative senator -- that's not him -- pat roberts. that's him. he risked defeat at the hands of his own real estate decision. >> "the new york times" revealed he does not have a home address in kansas. >> his voting address in the state is on a country club golf course. >> roberts spent just a total of 97 days in the state of kansas between july 2011 and august 2013. >> jon: 97 days over -- i'm pretty sure there are individual tornadoes that have spent more time in kansas. senator roberts, your defense? >> why don't you live here, though? >> every time i get an abone -- i mean, every time i get chance, i'm home. [audience reacts]. >> jon: truth is i only come
to this [bleeped] hole when i have. to wow, that wasn't a freudian slip, that was a freudian stage dive. the only way that could have been more freudian is if roberts blurted out that he avoids the state because his hot mom lives there. [laughter] it's going to be hard to go to sleep tonight. it seems like roberts is a goner. hits only hope is his challenger, milton wolf, tea party raidologist, turns out to be some sort of twisted sociopath. >> milton wolf issued a statement sunday admitting he made insensitive comments after posting some gruesome x-ray images of gunshot victims of his facebook page. [laughter] >> jon: pat roberts, you are one lucky son of a bitch.
>> wolf wrote a gunfire victim resembled a wound alien in a "terminator" film. >> jon: that's [bleeped] outrageous. forget about insensitivity. how do you elect a guy who thinks terminators are aliens? they're not. they're time-traveling cyborgs. they were made on earth in our future. did you even see the [bleeped] movie? that is disqualifying. [applause] i'm sorry. thankfully in a victory for nerds everywhere, senator roberts defeated mr. "i can't be bothered with the details of cinema's greatestality future sci-fi series." from the primaries, we move on to the general election. and one of this year's closest watched senate races in kentucky, named for its hills and mountains, and where 134-year-old political tradition continues. >> 15 anyhow political
activists, candidates and vote centers what is the most unforgettable campaign spectacle kentucky has to offer. the annual fancy farm picnic is under way. >> jon: fancy farm picnic, they don't serve fancy feast at this farm, do they? because not they wouldn't love to see mitch mcconnell eating cat food from the mall, hashtag "cat-connelling," not sure that's going to catch on. the fancy farm is an fair where candidates are encouraged to roast each other from the podium. let's hear from allison lundergan grimes, mcconnell's opponent. >> when you see senator mcconnell on the same stage, you realize only one of us believe women deserve equal pay for equal work. if mitch mcconnell were a tv show, heed be "mad men," treating women unfairly, stuck in 1968 and ending this season. >> jon: and always bumping out to end credit with an ironically
upbeat song, and then previewing next week the tells you nothing and mitch mcconnell would air sundays at 10:00 on amc, but not now because they're on a mid-season hiatus, which is something amc does like with "breaking bad." anyway, my point is this: mitch mcconnell is similar to that show. [laughter] but it wasn't grimes material that i liked, even though i did like it, it was senator mcconnell's reactions to her material. >> it's not easy become mitch mcconnell. after three decades in washington, you've just given up. i will hold you accountable, and i don't need hound dogs to track you down. thank you. [laughter] >> jon: he doesn't even move. not a single twitch. nothing. either mitch mcconnell has,
through years long practice of controlled breathing and zen meditation achieved a deep, metabolism slowing transstate or that man is dead inside. brother, she's ripping you to shreds. blink. his reactions are so inscrutable, you could use them for anything. >> what's in the box. what's in the box? oh, god. >> jon: or... >> hey, everybody, we're all going to get laid! >> jon: or, i sure would like the have sexual relations. [laughter] while following a golf match. yep. well, we've heard grimes throw down. your move, mcconnell. >> obama wouldn't go down to the
border. he said he didn't like photo ops. he's taken more selfies than flat stanley. [laughter] >> jon: flat stanley doesn't take selfies. flat stanley is a piece of paper. [laughter] mr. stanley asks second parties to take those photos on his behalf. they're not selfies. what the [bleeped] is with you guys. thank god kentucky's other senator rabid paul stopped by to restore some dignity to the proceedings. >> there once was a woman from kentucky... [laughter] >> jon: if you say whose [bleeped] was so long she could sucky,ly make you the new president of the united states. >> there once was a woman from
kentucky, who thought in politics she'd be lucky. so she flew to l.a. for a hollywood bash. she came home in a flash with buckets of cash. one thing that we know is true, one thing we know is guaranteed, she'd cast her first vote for harry reid. >> jon: there once was a man named rand paul. his limerick skills sucked my balls. his coif was so curly, his prose made me surly, balls, balls, balls, balls. hey, i wonder how senator mcconnell liked my poem. [laughter] we'll be right back. [ man ] cortana, when my wife calls

[ siri ] oh no, i cannot do that. oh, and remind me to get roses when i'm near any flower shop. sure thing. remind you when you get to flower shop. i can't do that either. cortana, it's gonna be a great night.

things because, you know, we trailblazers in the music business. we been around the world. you know, we're doing our job. i consider this a sport. so, you know, i think it's important as an athlete of music to make sure that you got your business together, make sure you feel happy, whatever you want to do, you just got to feel good about it and know that at the end of the day you got your i's dotted, your t's crossed. we have families. we go out and work for our families. >> jon: right. >> my thing is if i'm not going to see my children and i'm out here doing a job, i think it's important for me to go out there and do what i say i'm going to do, get back home to them and hit up disneyland. >> jon: exactly. be santa claus. now, ghost, i was worried that we weren't going to have ghost, came in a little late. you're the heart. you're an emotional guy. you bring it from the heart. did you have reservations about coming back and laying down

like the past 20, 21 years, you know what i mean, and not hurt nobody doing it. and like soon as we came together for one common cause, we knew that what we were doing was something different and something great and it showed improvement in the end. >> jon: and it's always interesting to see the whole group. i know dirty's always on the mind. you keep him in your hearts as you go along. >> jon: who do we got? what do we got? oh, you know i'm going to sleep in this. i may have to put this on now. when we come back, historic performance from the wu-tang clan. we'll be right back after this.
